Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.

There's a promo video for Alice's Munster Marathon turned up on YouTube.

After appearing at the launch for the upcoming VH-1 Classic show "Rock Band" a few weeks ago, it now turns out Alice will be one of the hosts on the show which starts airing on October 15th (although it doesn't list it on the channels schedule). To quote: "Professional rock stars Alice Cooper and Sebastian Bach will play hosts to 12 wannabe rockers who live in a loft together and vie to out-skill each other in challenges designed to showcase Rock Band 2's new features." More info can be found at Hollywood Insider and there's a trailer here featuring Alice. The show has a website here but there isn't much of interest there yet.
VH-1 also have a video of Alice talking about that chicken again, from the Rock Honors 2008 show it says.

The newsletter have posted the following update on what happened to the 'Late Late Show' performance.
"Well folks, he’s at it again… Alice Cooper, your favourite shock rocker, has again succeeded in shocking the censors in America.  But we have just the remedy for you! Last night Alice played “Vengeance Is Mine” from 'Along Came A Spider' on 'The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson' on the CBS Network in the U.S.  And he wasn’t allowed to do it the way he wanted to! He wanted to re-enact a piece of his new video by picking a female victim from the audience to choke with a silk scarf.  But the TV Station wouldn’t allow it!  Huh?!  Like we don’t see violence on the news?  Anyways…..Alice wasn’t allowed to.  All’s not fair in TV and Rock ‘n’ Roll it seems." has an album review. and Topnews (amongst otehrs) have short pieces about the 'Late Late Show.' Guelph Mercury has a short interview.

Not quite sure what's going on here, as last report was that Alice would be on the 'Late Late Show' tonight, not the 29th, but anyway Blabbermouth are reporting that Alice's performance of 'Vengeance Is Mine' was censored. They say:
"Alice Cooper, appearing on CBS-TV's "Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson" last night (Monday, September 29), was the victim, yet again, of corporate meddling in his rock 'n' roll. It's called censorship and Cooper, currently promoting his "Along Came A Spider" (SPV) album, has met this particular beast numerous times during his 40-year career.
The album tells the story of a serial killer and as part of the song, Alice was going to re-enact a piece of his video by picking a female victim from the audience to choke with a silk scarf during the band's live performance of "Vengeance is Mine". (Both the album version of the song and the video feature ex-GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Slash.) What viewers saw was a truncated version of what actually happened. Unfortunately, the "murder" of one of his victims was just too much for CBS-TV's censors (although Ferguson loved it) and, as such, his request was denied."
They also add "The uncensored version of the new thre-song video including "Vengeance is Mine" can be seen on as well as and starting Wednesday, October 1."
